You can tailor the degree to your interests and career aspirations giving you the freedom to specialise in a specific area of social science or to maintain a more general approach to your degree throughout. You will have the chance to undertake a placement in the local community which will provide you with real, practical and transferable skills as well as theoretical knowledge. You’ll also benefit from visiting guest lecturers who speak on a range of topics.
